Joe Manchin (D-WV) Rips President Obama on Failure to Lead on Budget



Freshman democrat US Senator Joe Mancin of West Virginia ripped President Barack Obama a new one today on the floor of the Senate stating that Obama failed to lead with his recently released budget proposal. Look for Manchin’s “Obama failure to lead” comment in a GOP Presidential candidate political commercial in 2012.

Manchin charged the president with failing to lead the way in reducing spending, while also criticizing Republicans for offering “partisan” and “unrealistic” budget proposals.

“Why are we doing all this when the most powerful person in these negotiations — our president — has failed to lead this debate or offer a serious proposal for spending and cuts that he would be willing to fight for?”

 This is what happens when a Democrat wins in a “red” state like West Virginia. Manchin knows that he faces election in 2012 and if he does not do what he said during the 2010 special west Virginia election, the voters will cast him aside. Manchin basically ran a a Republican, putting the cross-hairs, literally, on the Cap & Trade bill.

      Barry and the rest of the Democratic thugs are playing the budget game.

      This game begins when someone knows that their proposed budget is going to be reviewed and some cuts will be made. In order to get what they need the budget submitter makes the amount needed on the proposal greater than they actually need. This allows the reviewer/cuters to reduce the amount approved and the submitter still has what they wanted.

      The Democrats are now playing this on a huge scale. If the House budget committee will really take a hard look at the proposed budget, it would be easy to cut it down by fifty per cent or more.
